“In order to improve knowledge, changes must be made in the training process to incorporate methodologies such as simulation and online training” García-Expósito et al (2021).
“Material and drug costs significantly contributed to the composition of the average total direct cost of most procedures” de Melo and Lima (2021).
“Implementation of quality improvement multidisciplinary intervention; central line insertion and maintenance care bundle, dedicated IV team, education and feedback effectively reduced the rate of CLABSI within our pediatrics and neonatal ICUs” Hamza et al (2021).
“Based on these results, it is recommended that guidelines are developed for the management of extravasation, that periodic in-service training programs are provided and that observational studies are carried out into the administration of vesicant drugs” Atay (2021).
“Our analysis has implications for theorizing the role of PICC lines in the care of PWUD and identifies practical guidance for engaging them in productive and non-judgemental discussions about the risks of injecting into a PICC line, how to do it safely, and about medically supported alternatives” Guta et al (2021).
“In the following case report, we will explore the case of a 41-year-old female with metastatic urothelial carcinoma who developed multiple right atrial masses possibly associated with a deeply seated totally implanted vascular access device (TIVAD) tip within the right atrial wall” Dayco et al (2021).
“The findings show improvement in performance of ultrasound-guided peripheral intravenous access by CRNAs after a focused ultrasound education session” Briggs et al (2021).
“Our study showed that the use of needle plate, lidocaine spray, and lidocaine gel are all equally effective ways in controlling the degree of pain in AVF needling in children undergoing HD” Ravanshad et al (2021).
“Programs that include repeated simulation experiences may facilitate greater learning and thus increase the confidence of the nurses trained” Hackett et al (2021).
“Closed-system drug transfer devices (CSTDs) are used to prevent occupational exposure to hazardous drugs in health care providers” Chiang et al (2021).
“This proof-of-principle study demonstrates that the biplane ultrasound imaging approach for vessel cannulation resulted in an overall faster, more successful, and safer peripheral IV access than the standard single-plane transverse approach when performed by novice ultrasound users” Convissar et al (2021).
